Action for Children, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, The Ohio State University, and Future Ready Columbus THANK YOU for your support. Thanks to you, we have raised enough support to create 3,000 Columbus Cares Kid Kits to distribute to under-resourced families using local Nationwide Children’s Hospital Close to Home locations.

The purpose of the kits is to provide some guidance and relief to parents with children 5 and under during this challenging time. Our particular focus is those families that may be experiencing a disproportionate impact from the current pandemic conditions and may not have access to the array of options that are provided by virtual support. Our goal is for these kits to serve as a way to help those parents and children who are affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic by providing some much-needed age-appropriate learning materials and educational literature about parenting in these challenging times.

You may learn more about Action for Children’s ongoing work with families and providers throughout the pandemic here. If you would like to make a donation to support that work, please click here.
